Casa Epica

An Epic Cartagena Rental for Big Groups

An opulent, luxury vacation rental in the heart of Cartagena’s historic center, Casa Epica, takes care of itself, positively glistening from top to bottom after a swanky, 2016 refit of a former Cartagena family mansion into one of Cartagena’s stand-out holiday rentals.

    There is epic and then there is EPIC.

    As it’s name suggests, this luxury Cartagena vacation rental falls into the latter category, although you might not realise it at first glance.

    The reception is deceivingly small compared to the huge courtyard at the back, which is made even larger by the streams of light bouncing off the property's Colgate-white walls.

    The spacious rooms have a clean slate feel, with muted grey, creamy natural tones and plenty of light coming in from the sparkling courtyard. Countless modern art works and coffee table books give it an academic edge, without losing any of its contemporary cool.

    This luxurious bolthole is split into three spacious apartments with 11 bedrooms in total. Although many Cartagena vacation rentals balance this apartment/mansion category, there are few that reach the impressive heights of Casa Epica.

    Not only does every apartment boast huge bedrooms, walk-in closets, marble bathrooms and all the latest mod-cons, but each one contains its own palatial swimming pool and attractive deck area. Impressive.

    So how do you pick which apartment is right for you and your group?

    Well, if you're in a large group and love layered spaces, Apartment One is a match made in heaven.

    If you’re yearning for some Caribbean flavour, grab the keys for Apartment Two. The sunny furnishings, street facing views and fabulous swimming pool will set you into the Costeño groove.

    Private owls can seek sanctuary in Apartment Three. Located on the lower floor, it’s shadier, cooler and feels completely shut off from the rest of the world.

    In Casa Epica there is an epic match for everyone!

LOCATION

  • Centro

    Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city.

    Constructed on one of three islands that are now connected to the Colombian mainland, the historic walled city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

    Ever since UNESCO made the announcement the money has poured into restoring the incredible architecture contained inside its historic walls. Wandering aimlessly through Cartagena's historic center is without question it's one of the highlights of any trip to Colombia. 

    Centro has lost none of its importance over the last three centuries, thanks to the universal allure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area. 

    While the riches of the region no longer flow through Cartagena on their way from Colombia, Peru and Ecuador to Spain, the city has maintained its position as the colonial gem in Colombia's Caribbean crown.

    Cartagena's best hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century.

    The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze, added security, papal pardons and the chance to get an early first whiff of pirates.

    While it was home to the slave traders of yesteryear, today not much has changed with only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list able to afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.

    As well as hosting the most opulent churches and principal tourist landmarks, Centro is home to the best bars and restaurants in Cartagena.

    Standout foodie destinations include restaurants Don Juan, La Vitrola and Maria and bars and nightclubs like Alquimico, Cafe del MarLa Movida and La Jugada.
